    Norristown, PA- Bank of Montgomery County $1 Jan. 2, 1865 G14 Hoober 281-1 Fine.
    While this design is quite common as a high grade remainder, the same cannot be said for issued examples such as this note. This, in fact, marks only the third time we have offered an issued specimen. The note design itself is interesting. Union Colonel Schall, and Generals Slemmer, Hancock, and Hartranft appear on this late $1 remainder from a bank which was open from 1814 until it became the Montgomery National Bank in 1865. All four of these officers had ties to Norristown, having been educated, lived, or buried there. General Slemmer has been erroneously identified as "Clemmer" for a number of years. A vignette of the bank building and a small oval portrait of Washington complete the design.
